Port Adelaide’s Jack Watts admits a video of him snorting white powder off a women’s chest is a “shocking look”.
A video emerged on Sunday of him taken at Oktoberfest in Munich last October, with the AFL player claiming the substance featured was ‘Wiesn Pulver’, which is a legal substance made up of menthol, sugar and glucose.
It is commonly taken at the beer festival as a pick-me-up.
A remorseful Watts said he was disappointed in himself and apologised for the hurt caused by the video.
“You’ve probably seen it, it’s a pretty shocking look,” Watts told Channel Nine outside Port’s headquarters.
“I’m really obviously disappointed with myself and can imagine how my parents and my sisters watching a video like that, it’s not a great feeling.
“Obviously just the pain and the burden I’ve caused to the club and the supporters and my teammates and coaches, that’s probably what hurts me the most.”
The club have released a statement saying they were aware of the video and had spoken to Watts, with the AFL set to make their own enquiries.
Watts, the 2008, No.1 draft pick, played 153 games for Melbourne before switching to Port.
The 27-year-old played 19 matches last season for the Power.
